Nuka Ages ministering through music
Like most Malawian musicians, Nuka Ages, real name Fraston Shaba started singing at a tender age while in standard 7 at Loudon Primary School in Embangweni where he joined a Bible Study Club at the school.
He then developed interest in music which became part of his life with support from his family, he liked singing at church.
As time passed, he started joining music groups where his colleagues appreciated his work thereby gaining the confidence to start recording his own music.
Being a minister of God’s Word, music has given Nuka an opportunity to spread the Word to a wider audience.
That being said, the Mzuzu based RnB Gospel singer is this coming Friday set to release his first official song entitled “Destiny.”
In an interview on Thursday, the singer said he decided to name the song “Destiny” because of the message that the song is carrying.
He said the blessings we receive from God are what He wants us to go through and the end-destination of our lives is the blessing of God.
“The word of God reveals that He predestined us unto salvation hence you can see that God is the one who holds the end of man, God is the destination of man,” Nuka said.
He said the inspiration to do music comes from ministering of God’s word and preaching as music is his pulpit.
Nuka: music is my pulpit
“Music is giving me chances to touch people of which I am not be able to personally reach out to with the word of God therefore, to maximize my audience, music is the right platform,” the Singer said.
A Mzuzu resident, Temwa Mkandawire was full of encouraging words when the news about the song’s release date was disseminated on Uzimu Vibes Facebook Page saying she cannot wait to listen to the song.
She wrote, “Awesome, keep up the good work. Destiny is my baby’s name and I hope the song will reach out to me.”
